Ashcroft, a Methodist & URC LEP

Cirencester Ashcroft Church is a Methodist and United Reform Church Local Ecumenical Partnership (LEP).

It was formed when the nearby United Reformed Church joined with the Methodist Church at Ashcroft Road just over 20 years ago. Extensive renovation at that time meant that our church and centre now provide a hub for many groups and activities with over 50 groups, both spiritual and secular, making use of our building.

Jesus once said that the most important rule in life is to love God and to love your neighbour as yourself. And when he was asked: ‘Who is my neighbour?’ he responded with the parable of the Good Samaritan. In other words, anyone who is in need, even those who our society may despise, is our neighbour.

Cirencester Ashcroft Church fully demonstrates that love of neighbour in both practical and spiritual ways. We have a full programme 
of activities which caters for anyone from 1 to 101. We also have close links with the other churches in and around Cirencester. We are, after all, Christians first, who just happen to worship in different places in a diversity of traditions.

We host the town foodbank, as well as Signpost; a Christian organisation dedicated to helping the vulnerable and homeless of Cirencester. On Monday evenings our doors are open for anyone to come in and be served with a hot meal and a chat. Our main act of worship happens on Sunday mornings but there are many other opportunities to join us at different times. We’d love to see you, you will be assured a warm welcome!
